Lovely in early spring and I'm sure it's absolutely stunning during the Summer. The gardens aren't cheap to visit but it's worth it, particularly if you're going to be there for a bit longer as tickets are valid for a week. The beach at the bottom of the gardens was also a real treat, with no one else around.

We are frequent visitors to Falmouth, and have enjoyed walking through Trebah's gardens often. This time we went for Sunday lunch - and very good it was too. The restaurant was busy, with many locals having reserved a table - always a good sign, I think. My wife had the roasted Mediterranean vegetables with Brie, and I had the falafel... More

Trebah gardens is a heavenly garden retreat on the outskirts of Falmouth. The gardens have a subtropical feel with many exotic plants and varieties. Excitingly, the gardens lead down the valley to a beautiful private beach! Perfectly set up for children, I visit here with friends and family. The shop is well thought out and the restaurant comes highly recommended.... More

Beautifully maintained - a credit to the staff and a good restaurant as well. There is plenty of interest to see even in the winter months.

Beautiful setting, lovely gardens and well stocked shop and nursery. The restaurant offers a good and varied menu, in fact the number of dishes available is, I believe, too large. The restaurant tables are not the most comfortable I have sat in. Service is quite efficient and friendly. The restaurant allows dogs, but only in certain areas.

To finish off Cornish ice cream. Very reasonably price to, lots of locals in there! Will be back!!

Having visited Trebah Gardens numerous times, I have always been thrilled by the wonderful array of plants and flowers on display. In fact, I think it's possibly my favourite garden in the UK On this occasion i was disappointed though, partly because the plants weren't in full bloom (although i was obviously aware of that due to the time of...

We visit here a lot, its a great place with a very enjoyable walk and plenty of different paths to mix it up if you visit regularly. Its always so different dependant on the seasons and great to be able to walk down to the beach. We particularly love coming to have a pre walk lunch as the chef produces... More

Trebah is exceptional. The gardens themselves are quite beautiful and stretch down to a private beach which was used by Americal troops on D-Day. The restaurant and shop is excellent . A brilliant day out.
